Top 10 NFL Uniforms (2019 Edition)

As I’ve made apparent in my last post ranking football uniforms, I quite like looking at colorful clothing made for sports gladiators. The vivid display of war paint to signify the identity of each team is something I find very inspiring. What better way to show my appreciation for my NFL obsession than to pick out the best colors the league has had to offer? Continue reading “Top 10 NFL Uniforms (2019 Edition)”

An Ode to Jon Bois

I am writing this about twelve hours removed from reading 17776 for the first time. To some, this may seem like Bois’s most definitive work, considering the scale of the work and the reception it garners to this day. I’ve watched his works for years, whether on the SB Nation website or Youtube, but never took the deep dive into this grand-scale tale until recently. Hard to say why—a desire to enjoy easy-going, non-challenging content, or the pressure of gripping onto something that will guarantee some soul-searching by the end. By video game logic, it’s like preferring a few games of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to the entirety of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Continue reading “An Ode to Jon Bois”

Revisiting the First Round of the 2012 NFL Draft – Hit, Bust, or Fair

(This post was heavily inspired by NFL Films’ “Hit, Miss, or Meh” video covering the 2009 NFL Draft. I altered it slightly to suit my fancy.)

I began watching the NFL in 2011, after Super Bowl XLV sowed the seeds of football fanaticism within my soul. Even so, my experiences in 2011 were limited to only a few games later on in the season, and nothing substantial during the preceding offseason. It wasn’t until 2012 that I began following the sport even when it was off—the scouting combine, free agency, the draft, and whatever else. For this reason, I wanted to take the opportunity to elaborate on the players of the first round in the first NFL Draft I’ve ever seen unfold live as a young and starving enthusiast.

Ranking the Arena Football League’s New Uniforms

I don’t consider myself a fashion designer by any means, but I would jump at the chance to design some uniforms for various football teams. Where my adoration for football occasionally wanes with the seasons, my taste for sweet football threads is almost ashamedly immovable. Just recently, the Arena Football League announced they were partnering with Phenom to supply the league’s uniforms, and they showed them off all at once. It was a lot to take in—I prefer it that way. Continue reading “Ranking the Arena Football League’s New Uniforms”

An Ode to NFL Films’ Top 10 Series

I was casually browsing Youtube last night, looking for some mindless entertainment to pass the time. While productivity is always good, sometimes there’s no better alternative than to give the brain a full-blown rest. On a whim, I decide to check the NFL Films Youtube account, and lo and behold, they uploaded a new Top 10 video since the last time I checked. Mindless entertainment no more: I was partaking in NFL history. Whether or not this constitutes as “productive” is up to the individual to decide. Continue reading “An Ode to NFL Films’ Top 10 Series”
